Your Bucknell ID Card

When you join the Bucknell community, you will need a BUID card to take advantage of many important resources and services on campus, including dining options. Your BUID card will also allow you entry into secure buildings.

Campus Dollars

Campus Dollars work like a debit card and provide a way for students to use their BUID card to purchase items both on and off campus.

Your Campus Dollars account is automatically opened for you when you receive your BUID card. After your initial deposit, you can use your card right away. Campus Dollars are the only way students can pay for laundry in campus facilities. They can also be used at all campus dining locations, but they do not meet the meal plan requirement for students living on campus.

Campus Dollars

Your Campus Dollars account is a prepaid flexible spending account.

It works like a debit card: you deposit money into a special account linked to your BU ID, and then you can use your card to pay for stuff like laundry, dining and golf course expenses. Plus some off-campus expenses as well.
